NO WAY!!

I cannot believe how many things went wrong this morning.
  • 9:40 jumped into my car only to find it absolutely dead - NO CAR
  • ran inside to call mum as I thought I could make it if she could drive me - NO DIAL TONE
  • only a really obnoxious loud buzz - NO PHONE LINE
  • immediately got my pre-paid (or not - as the case may be) mobile from my handbag - NO COVERAGE
  • ran outside to get coverage - I would've run the two blocks to the park if I had thought it might help. The phone had "emergency calls only" - NO CREDIT?
NO WAY!
  • I checked the phone again and tried dialling anyway - in my opinion this was an emergency. The phone worked (I knew I must be low on credit - at best) and I rang - NO ANSWER
  • I rang hubby-j next - short conversation - NO HELP
  • I rang the surgery to let them know I would probably not be making it. Then rang my mum numerous times - NO ANSWER
  • I then came inside where I found a message from hubby-j on my 'puter screen - we typed for a bit. He was very much more helpful and I had very much more calmed down (having postponed my appointment until tomorrow) - then we lost connection - NO INTERNET & NO HUBBY-J
NO WAY!

I thought to myself...all I need now is to go into labour - no car, no phone, no coverage, no credit, no mother, no hubby-j, no internet...and btw...all the neighbours who never go out had all decided it was a nice day for an outing as well.

I kept trying my mum's...and finally...my
dear, sweet and don't forget thoughtful (can ya tell I was going to kill him!!) dad answered.

"I've been here all the time?...Weren't you supposed to be coming over?


What!!!
NO WAY!


Apparently...on a very important phone call?

Don't ya think that considering someone was obviously trying to repeatedly call during this very important phone call...and...that your eldest daughter just happens to be 39 weeks pregnant and could go into labour at any second that...

YA MIGHT ANSWER THE BLOODY CALL WAITING THAT YOU INSTALLED YOURSELF TO MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL YOUR VERY IMPORTANT
BLOODY PHONE CALLS!!!!!!



(excuse me!...I am glad I got that off my chest!)

Oh no! I'm giggling a little here. I'm so sorry you had a shit day but so glad it turned out ok and you didn't go into labour. I hope you're calmer now.

As the old cliche goes when it rains it pours I think you were in a monsoon. I am glad you seem to be well now.
Take care

Sorry I can't help but Utah is just to far away from where you are. Keep positive thoughts all is well.

Oh My God. I could feel my blood pressure rising just thinking about it. You poor thing. Thank God the baby didn't start to join in the 'festivities of monumental disasters' that was yesterday. Twice as lucky given how close you actually are to bursting!

hillarious my dear. when baby Lilo decided to pop out, both our phones went dead AND we were stuck in traffic ON the bridge. It took us an hour to get to the hospital.
Amazing how things work that way when we need them to go P*E*R*F*E*C*T.
im expecting to see that pyglet any day now. hang in there. im thinking of you.
